Facilitate connection of traditional input and output signals onto a bus network with newly introduced LB/FB remote I/O systems.
They support general-purpose or intrinsically safe applications with modules that can be mixed and matched on the same backplane. They facilitate connection to PROFIBUS DP, Modbus, and FOUNDATION fieldbus for all traditional signal types. These include discrete, analog, frequency, and temperature. Redundancy for the communication interface and power supply are provided.
Among LB/FB benefits are reduced wiring, fewer DCS control cards, fewer terminations for reduced installation costs, plus no need for marshalling panels.
